Thread: Any ETA on the CNC Billet Voracity 36 Adjustable Trim tabs?

    Default Any ETA on the CNC Billet Voracity 36 Adjustable Trim tabs?

    I have been waiting for these all (last) year and it still says out of stock.
    Are these going to be in production soon? I'd love to have them not necessarily for adjustment but because they look so fricken cool!

    I just wonder about the dual pickup rudder dimensions and if they are the same as stock. My 2214 prop is dangerously close to the stock rudder and some extra length may result in the two hitting each other at a full turn.

    That dual cooling rudder will only work if you have the revised rudder design on your Voracity with a breakaway shear screw. The original rudder was a fixed, one piece design.

    Mine is the newer type.

    I am curious though if that aftermarket dual pickup rudder would smack into my 2214 prop, the stocker just seemed to barely clear it when we tested it the other day when fully turned. The dual pickup rudder might be a bit longer (from the front to back) to accommodate the second water pickup hose...plus all that gear is from Australia and expensive to ship to us in the USA.

    They look sweet, almost identical to the ones OSE is advertising are "in production" I wonder if they are the same supplier. Would be awesome if RCboatbitz made everything available in blue as an option.
    RCBB gave me a spec of 5mm longer (from front to back) for the new dual intake rudder (stock is like 24mm), so it would definitely hit a 2214 prop as I only have about 2mm max clearance. I could drill out the rudder brace to allow it to scoot to the right a few mm but it may mess up the steering servo position. I wish the voracity had a big aftermarket following like the traxxas spartan does.

    Do you think this would do? I believe these are close in size where the ones you want are 40mm x 50mm, these are 30mm x 50mm. You could actually put four of these and be able to have more versatility in controlling the rides especially in turns as you can raise or lower the inside tabs to handle the turns better. I know it's added cost but handling would be superior. This is also available in OSE store. I'm actually going to get one this year but waiting for a great deal on these...new or used hopefully w/ upgrades

    Yea I did see the smaller ones, those look cool but Im probably going to wait to see if OSE releases the new ones before the summer or I'll just get the RCBB silver version.

    I installed mine yesterday, The bolts were much larger and I had to drill the hull to get them to fit. The washers were too large and would not fit over the bolts on the inside and I had to use smaller ones. After I got everything siliconed, the tabs would not sit flush with the bottom of the boat and stuck out which would cause drag in the water. I had to rip everything out again and elongate the bolt holes upwards to allow the tabs to no longer stick out at the bottom...Not a fun time and it definitely was not a direct bolt on as advertised.

    What advantage do those turn fins have over stock? Is it a direct replacement for the turn fin?

    I've wanted to upgrade mine and am thinking about these.

    My last reply was deleted, so I will keep this one short. I did not notice any difference with the larger turn fins "performance wise". The adjustable trim tabs with a bit of rake will keep the boats nose in the water better, but they are heavy. The speed via GPS did not really change because of that.
